tough. >> it has been tough my whole life. sometimes i can't take it and sometimes when i come home, i just feel all upset. >> reporter: that doesn't last long. >> we have lots of stuff for 25 cents or 50 cents. >> reporter: ella's story is one of optimism, coping with problems the way someone does when their responsibilities are far greater than their years. >> thank you. thank you so much. do you need help? >> george sells of our affiliate, kpar. ella's yard sale going on right now actually. >> now, from the cnn center in atlanta georgia, this is cnn saturday morning for this september the 18th. i'm t.j. holms. glad you are right here and bermuda is bracing right now for that big sucker you see in the middle of your screen. that is hurricane igor. we will have a live report from bermuda. pope benedict apologizing in
great britain for the church sex abuse schedule. we are also live in london for you this morning. give you a look at some o of the other stories making headlines. alaska's senator, lisa murkowski, said she will start a write-in campaign, still trying to hold on to the scene. we will have more on this and an analysis on her likelyhood to succeed. the polls now closed in afghanistan. 2500 candidates competing for 249 parliamentary seats in the country's fourth national election since 2004. taliban militants called for a boycott of the election and in the first hours of voting, there were reports of scattered roadside bombing, rocket attacks, including one right outside nato headquarters in kabul. nobody there. we will have a live report from afghanistan as well. bp's broken oil well in the gulf of mexico about to be dead for good. today, bp officials bumped some
cement into the bottom of the well. once it is set, the final pressure test will be conducted. if all is successful, the well will be officially declared dead. it ruptured five months ago causing the largest oil spill in u.s. history. pope benedict xvi expressing deep sympathy for the conflict that has hit the catholic church. >> you are at the spot where a lot of people are coming together for his next public event? >> reporter: this is hyde park in london where the park will end with a prayer vigil that is expected to be attended by around 80,000 people or so. i can tell you that there are easily tens of thousands of people here already and the headlines are still about three hours or so away. it has been a busy day for the pope.
it started with a meeting with the british prime minister at london's westminster cathedral. it was there he touched on that story that follows him everywhere. the child abuse scandal. he spoke of how everyone within the church feels shame and humiliation as what members of the clergy have done. take a listen. >> to cause abuse of children, especially since the church. above all, i express my deep sorrow to the innocent victims of this despicable crime along with my hope that the power of christ, his sacrifice of reconciliation will bring deep healing and peace to their lives. >> reporter: that's the pope
there speaking of his own sorrow at the abuse of children particularly within the church. an apology. to the victims, some of them say, it is still not enough. it hasn't had any effect on a big planned protest against the pope today. currently, there are thousands of people marching through the streets of london protesting the church's response to the child abuse scandal but also other issues as well. things like abortion, the church's opposition to that, contraception, female priests and so forth. so thousands of people involved in that march. the organizers say around 10,000 or so. that's still a relatively small number compared to the 80,000 people we are expecting here in hyde park later today. >> phil black covering things for us this morning. phil, we appreciate you as always. we want to turn now back to politics in this country. alaska senator, lisa murkowski, hopes to join the
ranks. how are you doing there? >> shannon travis is standing in my camera shot. this is shan an travis, one have o our political producers. you are one that has covered this lisa murkowski story for some time. you have covered what has happened in alaska. we kind of saw this coming but a lot of people still surprised. you lost the primary. they don't want you. now, she is trying another route to get on the ballot and get back her seat. >> she seems to think there are enough people who do want her which is why she is mounting this write-in candidacy. she conceded a few weeks ago. i was there in ac ago. t the look i saw on her face at the hands of conservatives and peoples and ideology that she supported for a long time. since her concession, according to her, alaskan voters have been
contacting her and telling her to get back in the race. she thinks there is support out there for her. >> if you have talked to her or been around her, let me know if you recognize this woman. let's play this for our audience here. a much different sounding senator murkowski from last night. >> we all know that i went back to washington a couple days ago. the land of negative nabobism, these outside interest groups like the tea party express, the pundits, a lot of naysayers. all the political guys, some of my fellow republicans, they tell me that this can't be done, that this is a futile effort. well, perhaps it is one time that they met one republican woman that won't quit on alaska. >> that's the lisa murkowski you
know. >> that is not the lisa murkowski that i have spoken with and probably not recognizable to other people but, hey, it is the lisa murkowski of now. this talk of fighting, fighting on for her seat to save her election. you notice at the end of that sound bite, she said, i am going to be the one republican woman who doesn't quit. she didn't name names. >> she didn't have to. >> she didn't have to name names but she did say that back in 2009, when governor palin resigned the governorship, murkowski said she abandoned the state. was that a little dig at palin? >> i'll say it. yes, i'll decide right now. yes, of course it was. >> it could be. it was probably just bad blood they have between them. >> aside from all that, the trick here in trying to get on as a write-in candidate, people have to physically go in there and write down murkowski.
>> it's really tricky, which is probably why it has only successfully been done back in 1954. her name won't be on the ballot. people will literally have to write in lisa murkowski. there is a little bit of latitude if they misspell her name or write in lisa m. the division of elections might say, the intent was there. if they write lisa or lisa m, this could get messy. >> oh, goodness. >> she is bringing her campaign back from the political dead. she feels like enough people will vote for her, will write in and fill in the bubble. will she split the republican vote and hand in the democrat? it is also a concern. >> this write-in part, you have to write in the name and fill in the oval. >> take your glasses if you are
going to vote for lisa murkowski. is it the first step toward a presidential campaign? sarah palin gave a pretty fiery speech at a republican fund-raiser in iowa. she attacked the obama administration as well as the news media and with the mid-term elections approaching, she called on the republican establishment to join forces with tea party activists. >> a time for unity now. the time for choosing is near. in just 46 days, republicans will put their ideas and their experience on the line and they will let the voters decide. it is time to unite. if the goal really is to take away the gavel from pelosi and reid and to stop the obama agenda and let the government respect the will and the wisdom of the people, then it is time to unite. >> we will tip with updates from the mid-term election campaign.
as always, go to cnn.com/politics. ber moo b bermuda, ready for a head-on collision with igor. >> reporter: good morning, t.j. the sun is out. we are going to see a major transformation in our wet ner in the next 12 to 24 to 36 hours. we will give you the full scoop on what we expect here in ber moo da. that's coming up. you are watching cnn saturday morning. well, it is. just get the superpagesmobile app on your phone. and look for a business with the superguarantee®. you'll get the job done right, or we'll step in and help make it right. so, protect yourself. use your phone to find a business with the superguarantee®. only from superpages.com®. and let the good guys come to the rescue. i but i justve my 5 employcan't afford it.ance,

a hurricane warning is in effect for bermuda. we have tropical storm julia, the remnants of hurricane karl as well. our reynolds wolf is waiting for igor's arrival. he is live for us in bermuda. how much time do they have? how much time do you have before it gets to you there? >> reporter: parts of the storm
here. despite the sunshine and the light breeze we have now, the waves are getting very, very big. some people are taking advantage of it. i am going to pan over here. if you happen to see, we have cnn photojournalist get behind the camera. i don't know if you folks can see it. it might be choppy with the satellite. there is a red wind board back there. there is a guy with the swimming trunks. that guy is about to go out there and brave the surf. i hope it is not a suicide mission. those waves out there are getting very, very big. some of them right beyond the coral reef are about 19 feet. with the wipd really picking them up. some of them getting up to 20, 25. if you are expecting the waves to get bigger. we are down by the beach itself a short while ago to see some of the water firsthand. pretty interesting to say the least. here is another look at the deteriorating conditions on elbow beach here in bermuda. steve, watch your feet.
i'm with photo journjournalist, shored. as they get closer to shore, some of these, 5-7 feet. high tide comes in early this evening and again around dawn tomorrow. they had trouble with the storm, 5 to 7 feet could be very interesting. you see some of the waves pounding against these rocks in the distance. it's amazing to see the power of these things. some of the waves have been coming right up against the structure, against this part of the building. if you look at the billing, itself, many of the windows have hurricane shutters up, getting ready for what is at this time, the strongest storm in the plan net. >> we have been told, t.j., that some of the waves, close to the center of circulation, may be in excess of 50 feet. certainly not surprising with i astorm like this, which is a category 2 but may strengthen to a category 3 as it gets closer to bermuda.
we will be here to record every single bit of it. let's send it to you. >> reynolds, you hang tight there. we will be checking with you throughout the day and weekend. our cnn is your hurricane headquarters. our meteorologist, karen maginnis, tracking all the other tropical trouble. how much more trouble are we talking about? karl was an issue for quite some time. we are almost done with karl. >> yes, it has fizzled out across extreme southern mexico. >> then, we have got julia. >> julia is a little petite storm. >> she sounds so cute. >> but we do, we are still watching it. it is situated out into the atlantic. igor is really the monster system system that is going to be bearing down across bermuda. we will start to see, some of the outer bands associated with
igor. >> it is moving toward the west, northwest. here is bermuda, you can see some of the bands affecting this area. and, towards the center, national hurricane center, updated us. still at a category 2 hurricane. however, hurricane force winds extend further out from the center up to 105 mile miles from the center. you can see just volume of the atlantic, that this is encompassing. i want to show you what's happening with carl. carl really no longer exists. national hurricane center says they have quit issued advisories on karl. for the united states, hot temperatures still across the southwestern and south central united states in towards atlanta. if you head up towards minneapolis, it should be about 61 degrees. seattle, a comfortable 68. seattle, rain off and on for the
next several days. t.j., doesn't look like summer is over just yet. it officially arrives on wednesday. late wednesday. can't wait. >> appreciate you as always, thanks so much. 17 past the hour. here now under a cloud of violence and corruption, afghan voters cast their ballots in election today. we are going to take you live in just a moment. stay with us. when i brush, i like to do a really mediocre job. i love running my tongue across my teeth and feeling all the stuff i missed.

u.s. senate seat as a write-in candidate. she is the incumbent, forced to take this unlikely route for re-election after she lost in the state's gop primary to a tea-party backed candidate. >> two families have reached a settlement with toyota following a crash that killed four family members. victims died when the lexus they were riding in excelled uncontrollably. the pedal probably became tro d trapped by an incorrectly installed floor mat. the family did say toyota did not admit liability. recently freed american hiker, sarah shourd, is expected to speak in a few moments before she gets on a plane in imam headed back to the u.s. what you are looking at is a gathering of reporters at a lounge. we are expecting her to speak in just a short time. she was freed after being held in iran for over a year.
she is expected to many could out, be introduced by a family member and make a short statement but not expected to take any questions just yet. we will keep a close eye on this. when that happens, we will bring that to you live. the voting is over. the counting now needs to begin in afghanistan's fourth national election. they have cast ballots for hundreds of parliamentary seats under the threat of attack by taliban militants. i want to head live to ivan watson live in kabul. always good to have you. the taliban said they wanted to keep people away with the threat of violence. did that work? >> reporter: well, we did see here in kabul lines, long lines of women and men going to the polls to cast their ballots. i have to say, these people braved an earthquake that struck this city before dawn this morning, 6.3 magnitude. they braved threats from the taliban, a series of grenade and rocket attacks across the
country and widespread allegations coming from some of the 2500 plus candidates for parliament themselves that there was fraud at the polls. we did see a number of arguments breaking out at some of the polling stations here between people accusing each other of cheating, of using false documents to vote. more disturbingly, there were a number of security incidents, at least 160, according to the united nations across the country. at least 12 civilians killed in what afghan officials say were taliban-related clashes. i asked one candidate whether he thought this was a good day for democracy. take a listen to what he had to say, t.j. >> yes, it is a good day for democracy. unfortunately, in afghanistan, it is not a good democratic. that is not the real election.
>> reporter: t.j., despite the fact that many afghans admitted, yes, our elections are not perfect, many said they were going to go to the polls despite that to try to vote for people they trust in hopes that maybe this country could get a little more peaceful and certainly a lot more prosperous. t.j.? >> that was going to be my follow-up. remind us all what's at stake in these elections. >> this is a country that's faced 30 years of war. it is going supported by 150,000 international troops. the raging taliban insurgency is worse now than ever since it was overthrown some nine years ago. the people here are voting for 249 parliament members in the afghan parliament and for many of these peernlgs tople, the pa members are their only real chance to reach out to the
afghanistan president. their credibility is at an all-time low. >> ivan watson in kabul. always good to have you. thank you so much. for the first time in nearly 100 years, virginia may put a woman to death. we'll tell you about her crime and why her lawyers say she needs to be spared. it's 26 minutes past the hour. . long summer days, and not enough sleep. what i wouldn't do for a do-over.

coming up on the bottom of the hour, the tragedy we saw last night under friday night lights. this happened in a state where high school football is king. this happened in the small town of west orange texas. it left the town in a state of shock. the star quarterback of the high school football team died during last night's game. witnesses say the quarterback, reginald garrett, collapsed shortly after throwing his second touchdown pass of the
night. he was quickly rushed to the hospital where teenage friends and family all gathered where doctors tried and could not save him. >> the paramedics did everything possible in the field. we did -- we worked with him for well over an hour. we did everything possible, including our physician getting on the line to a local card olgist o cardiologist. we couldn't get a heart beat back. >> what was that hospital like? was it full of people at the time? >> his family was all there, of course. it was very devastating. lots of crying and shortly after the game ended, my parking lot completely filled with people. the waiting room was full. the parking lot was full. there was cheerleaders and band members. all the coaches were there. it was the entire community, the entire football stadium came to
the hospital to check on him. we were trying our best to give them good good news and comfort them but it was impossible. >> she went on to add that garrett was a senior, a straight "a" student at west orange high school and being courted by a number of colleges. we want to give you a reminder. we are keeping an eye on this. we are standing by to hear over in oman from sarah shourd. this is her uncle or another family member at the podium. this is at the airport at a lounge there. he is going to introduce her to make a statement. i want to go ahead and listen. we are expecting her to step up not for questions but to make a statement. let's listen. >> i want to begin by thanking his majesty for welcoming me to
this beautiful country. i also want to extend my gratitude to the american ambassador and his wife for hosting my family and i during our brief stay. most importantly, for this in the life of my fiancee, shane and my dear friend, josh. i would be able to show shane and josh the grand mosque soon, one of the most peaceful and powerful places of worship i have ever seen. i will always associate this
country with the death of my freedom and the chance to stand by the ocean listening to the waves. i think the good hospitable people of oman for your support and ask you to please extend your prayers to my fiancee, shane and my friend, josh. hoping that they will soon be free. thank you. >> well, we were told it was going to be a short statement and it is wa a short statement. just about a minute or so. making comments. kind of difficult to make it out. it wasn't the best connection. we were at the mercy of the technology there in the airport. still, to hear from her. she made several comments about the people of oman, thanking them for their hospitalities. she has been there for several days, where she went when she was released. we are expecting to hear from
her tomorrow. they have already set up a news conference that's going to take place in new york tomorrow. we will bring that to you as well. she made several comments extending the people there and hoping people will extend their prayers to the two she had to leave behind. they weren't released. she talked about her fiancee, shane bauer. the two got engaged while she was in prison there and josh fattal. the other friend. these three hikers. you know the story and know it well. they were taken by iran after they accidentally crossed into the border. she was allowed to leave on $500,000 in bail as she also had some medical issues sha she needed to get out of there. as a humanitarian gesture, they let her go, for $500,000 in bail. she now is on her way home, back to the u.s., should be here at some point at the end of the day today. if not, some sometime early tomorrow morning. don't know when the flight is going to arrive. we do know they have already set
up a press conference for tomorrow. again, there she was, sarah shourd, on her way back home after her year-long ordeal but still kept the names josh fa tall and shane bauer, the two, one of her fiancee, shane, still in captivity, keeping the attention and prayers for them right now. we will move on at 34 minutes past the hour. we have to tell you about the chilean minors. a new bore hole has reached the 33, that have been trapped. much more work has to be done before they get rescued. there is some good news. this is great. it doesn't mean they are coming out any time soon. stay with us on this cnn saturday morning. so we need the brita pitcher. for healthier, clean tasting water.
old legs. p.a.d., the doctor said. p-a-d... p.a.d. isn't just poor circulation in your legs causing you pain. it more than doubles your risk of a heart attack or stroke. i was going to tell you. if you have p.a.d., plavix can help protect you from a heart attack or stroke. plavix helps keep blood platelets from sticking together and forming clots, the cause of most heart attacks and strokes. call the doctor about plavix -- please? i will. [ male announcer ] certain genetic factors and some medicines such as prilosec reduce the effect of plavix leaving you at greater risk for heart attack and stroke.
your doctor may use genetic tests to determine treatment. don't stop taking plavix without talking to your doctor as your risk of heart attack or stroke may increase. people with stomach ulcers or conditions that cause bleeding should not use plavix. taking plavix alone or with some other medicines including aspirin may increase bleeding risk, so tell your doctor when planning surgery. tell your doctor all medicines you take including aspirin especially if you've had a stroke. if fever, unexplained weakness or confusion develops, tell your doctor promptly. these may be signs of ttp, a rare but potentially life-threatening condition, reported sometimes less than two weeks after starting plavix. other rare but serious side effects may occur. [ female announcer ] talk to your doctor about plavix. 37 minutes past the hour now. today is independence day in
chile. 33 trapped miners. they are sharing a celebration feast thanks to a special meal that was sent down to them. they are getting all kinds of stuff. a new bore hole reached the miners yesterday. our carl pento tells us what that means now. >> reporter: mid-morning, and a breakthrough in the rescue effort. >> communication started happening with the miners. they were a big part of that process, letting us know how far we were from them. they were able to pull the plug out and what we call sound or measure where our bit is so we could mark the point on the drill pipe and then break through. >> reporter: the u.s.-based company has punched a 12-inch drill bit down to where the 33 mipe m miners are trapped. the rig is owned by a chilean
cope. >> we had a late start and came out of the gate rather fast. >> reporter: the hardest job may still lie ahead. rescuers have drilled down again making the hole more than twice as wide, big enough to get the men back to the surface. the millioni dollar question is how long will it take to widen this hole? >> that's hard to predict. howigh is up? >> reporter: chile's mine minister said it could still take six weeks. >> you can imagine this that we are eating here doughnuts. in this part, we are eating the center part of the doughnut, which is smaller. now, we have to eat the whole part of the doughnut. it is a lot more material we have to remove. it will take more time.
>> reporter: it is far from clear that plan b will be the plan that rescues the miners. over there, plan c, an oil rig can drill faster than the other two options. it is unlikely to be fired up until probably monday. as the drills grind away. families camp out of the mines preparing the cookout for chile's independence day celebration this weekend. for the trapped miners, chefs prepare a treat of impanadas, pastries stuffed with meet, it onions and olives. they will get a barbecued steak underground too. minister gold born says he bet rescue workers another barbecue, depending which team can pull the miners back to earth quickest. >> no matter which arrives earlier, i will be very happy if we can do that as soon as
possible. >> reporter: carl pento, cnn, san jose mine, chile. as you saw a moment ago, sarah shored, one of the three released hiders that have been held in iran is on her way back home. she made it to oman. she is set to come home. we heard from her a moment ago as she made a statement. our senior international correspondent, nic robertson, is there. nic? >> reporter: t.j., she looked like she had caught a little bit of sun. she seemed to be fairly relaxed when she came to me. the words were, no questions. she thanked the sultan of oman. what i found very interesting, she described her stay as unfortunately short, an impression has been created here that she would liked to have stayed longer to do more for the release of her fiancee, shane bauer, and of her friend, josh
fattal. however, she said she had enjoyed the hospitality here and she would always remember the smell of the san dalwood of enjoying her first few days of freedom here and today she went to see the sultan grand mosque here. she said she looked forward to taking shane and josh to see it when they get their freedom. she also talked about how she had enjoyed walking on the beach getting the first few moments of freedom. the sense i took from her here in this brief statement is she is looking forward to going back home to the united states but at the same time she knows she is moving further away from her boyfriend, from her fiancee, from her friend who is still in captivity. there is this real sense that she really doesn't want to leave. only, she knows she must to continue the process of trying to win their freedom, t.j. >> our nic robertson. i think you are able to hear me now that you have that phone up to your ear. do we know when she is supposed
to head back to the u.s. we understand she has a press conference scheduled for new york sometime tomorrow. is she now about to get on a plane and head for home? >> she is, quite literally, t.j. she is going to get on a flight from here. we understand within the next hour, she will stop off in dubai and then we understand but don't know the details for sure, she will take a connecting flight to new york. it is going to be a long, overnight hold for her. she is going to arrive mid morning tomorrow morning in new york and as she has the press conference in the afternoon. we are eight hours ahead of eastern time. no doubt, by the time she arrives in new york at the press conference, she is going to be quite tired. this is a lady full of energy and determination. she shows that again today. the omani officials wanted to present her with a small gift. they gave her and her mother a small gift and also gave her a
bouqu bouquet of flowers. it was a very touching moment. this is a lady that is only going to be more used to the media. she was not sure exactly what to do. the ground rules were, no questions. she stayed for a few more photographs with those roses but clearly this is a lady we are going to see a lot more of. she says she is absolutely determined to get her fiancee and her boyfriend free from jail in tehran, t.j. >> nic, we appreciate you as always. sarah shourd, held in an iranian prison for more than a year, literally about to get on her plane and be on her way back home. stay with us here. quarter to the top of the hour.
quarter to the top of the hour. we are your hurricane headquarters. our eyes on bermuda, where igor is heading that way. tropical storm julia is a petite little thing and tropical storm karl is fizzling out. igor should be the focus. >> it encompasses a broad area. it is not affecting any land masses just yet. they are picking up the wind a little more around bermuda. you will see -- as a matter of fact, i goal ahead and show it to you. zoom in on this and i will tell you what's happening. as we look right towards the center, this is bermuda, you can see some of the outer bands at the periphery. this comes from weather.bm. this is directly out of bermuda they are picking up a couple of shourgs here and there.
nothing dramatic from the national hurricane center. here we go. as we go to air, right now, 11:00 a.m., the national hurricane center updated their information regarding what is happening with igor. we think it will start to curve more toward the north/northwest as we go into the next 12 to 24 hours. here sits bermuda. now, they are saying, instead of a cat 3 hurricane, they are keeping it at a cat 2 hurricane. still, very substantial. still can produce a lot of damage, the possibility of loss of life, power outages. this is going to be a real big burden as we go into the next 12 to 24 hours. t.j.,it looks like it could make landfall late sunday going into early monday. >> we will start seeing some of
this stuff throughout the day tomorrow. thanks for being with us this morning. we appreciate it. coming up natalee holloway's mother confronting joran van der sloot in prison. we'll take a look at that coming up. i didn't miss a premium payment for 10 years. the minute i got sick, i lost my insurance. not anymore. america's healthcare reforms change lives for the better. to find out how it can help you, visit us at americasfairhealthcare.org ♪ [ upbeat instrumental ] [ rattling ] [ gasps ] [ rattling ] [ laughing ] [ announcer ] close enough just isn't good enough. - if your car is in an accident, - [ laughing continues ] make sure it's repaired with the right replacement parts. take the scary out of life with travelers.
